Re: Endless HTTP auth attempts without 5xx error? [was: Basic HTTP auth prompting too many times]

Sorry I guess I meant 401 instead of 5xx? Well, same question tho.

--------------------------------------------

by the way, i changed to
nginx basic_auth and when I enter
wrong
credentials, it allows me endless tries.  i'm was
used
to apache gives a 5xx page after three
bad tries.  i guess you
could refresh that
and try again in apache too, but endless
tries without a error for nginx?  is there a
way to change this?
